Might as well get the 560 it is clocked a little higher you might as well get the newer run of cards, If you can help it order a smaller more affordable 600 watt PSU to see if you can use that money for a TI version of the 560 as the two cards you have chosen are pretty close to eachother. the 560 ti on the other hand will be a great step up.

sorry :p  new to this man
my resolution is 1280x1024
I play pretty serious, like to be able to play competitively on game. However can't really do that atm with my hd5450 on bc2 because average fps is 20-30. Want to be able to play new games coming out , bf3 mw3 etc.. Smooothly, no lag with a average-good fps

if you want to stay at that resolution you could get a 6770 or 6850, and that will be just fine for you. if you plan on upgrading your monitor i would suggest a 6870 or 560

I say play it safe with a 6850 my 5770 just barely maxes Crysis2 without aa @ 720P and just stays above 30 frames min was 32 so far anyway and thats a very similar resolution.
